night live," you may have lost america. the hits on obamacare, they keep coming. and kathleen sebelius keeps testifying and the problems are revealed. first one, the obamacare website still not working this morning, it crashed totally yet again last night and in all 50 states, nobody can sign up. according to verizon, the crash is being blamed 0 a network failure and a troubling sign. the vast majority of people who successfully signed up are using the website to get medicaid, look at kentucky, out of 20,000 new enrollees 82% from were medicaid and 87% signed up for medicaid and the list goes on. this means that people are signing up for free health care and if young, healthy people are not getting private plans and putting their money into the system, obamacare collapses. and we have the list of democrats urging an extension of open enrollment growing, fast. ten senators signed a letter to the president pushing for extension beyond march the 31st, and all that this monday morning, and it's not just obamacare in the news though, i've got 30 seconds worth of climate change headlines for
this afternoon when three house republicans slammed health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius for blaming problems with the rollout on the government shutdown. but the latest issue with the website wasn't political at all. it was another big technical problem over the weekend that only got fixed today. is it working or not? 27 days after it was supposed to be open for business, the healthcare.gov website crashed again over the weekend. it was up and running again on monday. the administration blames this latest problem on one of the 56 contractors for the project, a subsidiary of verizon called terremark which was responsible for website capacity issues. >> the healthcare.gov technical team continued troubleshooting the issue with the online creation account process. >> reporter: meanwhile, the administration had other pressing problems. a triple threat on capitol hill. republican chairman darrell issa and his house reform and oversight committee wanted a slew of documents related to obama care and the rollout by 5:00 p.m. today. that deadline came and went, but issa has more
before the house oversight committee, and on wednesday kathleen sebelius testifies before the house energy and commerce committee. and republicans say the web site failures are just more evidence obamacare is unsustainable. >> this is an incompetent rollout, symptomatic of a liberal ideology that believes government should be running our health care. i think this is just the tip of the iceberg. eventually, they'll fix the internet problems. >> reporter: democrats have also criticized it, hoe they say the government -- though they say the government will eventually fix the problems. administration officials say the site should be working for most by the end of next month. back to you. dagen: rich, thank you so much for that, rich edson in washington, of course, we will be watching that, and here with more is tevi choi, good the see you as always. what's the point of having these hearings? what's going to come out of them that amounts to anything in terms of getting this thing up and runningsome. >> well, that's a good question. you always wonder if there's any benefit to be had to th
. just after kathleen sebelius praised it as a model of sufficiency and security. that malfunction was fixed, but it is the tip of the proverbial iceberg and no one is taking responsibility for all that has gone wrong with the website. the question is -- and there must be an answer to this at some point -- where does the buck stop? it would seem like an easy question to answer. but how did it go so wrong sno. >> it would seem that way. we know this. the obama care girl who was on the cover here, smiling young woman, has disappeared. we don't know why. maybe she's not smiling amid all these problems, but it's just as well. because too many people were involved with this from the start. that's what we're learning. how did this go so wrong? in a perfect world most agree that it should have gone like this. president obama would have outlined some goals. kathleen sebelius would come up with a plan to reach those goals. an agency, in this case, the centers for medicaid and medicare centers would hire computer services to make it happen. and voila, there is your fully functioning website.
to the contractors last week and we have kathleen sebelius in the hot seat this week. what are the first questions that you want to ask of the secretary? >> well, what i'd like to know from the secretary is, number one, why did she repeatedly over time tell us that by october 1st, that website was going to be ready to go, that every american would be able to come on. i also want to understand who did what when. who was calling the shots? why was this process interrupted? you know, things like the shop and browse portion were turned off. there are so many questions. but now i'd also like to know from kathleen sebelius how am i going to respond. i am getting thousands of requests from -- reaching out to my office telling me that their health care premiums are going up and that their health care plan that they have is being cancelled. how do i respond to that. those are the questions i'd like to know. >> have you asked anyone in north carolina why the state didn't start its own exchange, knowing that there was going to be a 3.5% increase on all those people in your home state of north carolina that w
,000, 21,000 are in medicaid. 5,000 are in qualified health plans. >> reporter: secretary kathleen sebelius who will be on the hot seat over all of this at a congressional hearing wednesday was already the butt of the opening segment of "saturday night live". >> not working and breaking and sucking. well, tonight, i have a number of friendly tips to help you deal with those technical problems. for example, have you tried restarting your computer? >> reporter: the real secretary sebelius will be testifying on capitol hill wednesday. and the president is planning what might be a little bit of a distraction. he's going to boston that same day where he's going to compare this rollout to the rollout of mitt romney's health care plan in massachusetts. bret. >> ed henry on the north lawn. thank you. while millions are still unable to learn the nuts and bolts of the health care exchanges from the government's troubled website, some people up to no good may actually be learning more about you. correspondent peter ducy tells us how that works. >> reporter: the system is down at the moment. that's wha

people call for hhs secretary kathleen sebelius to step down over this, but i say it's way over time to hold president obama accountable. the buck stops there. he ought to show some back bone and not just blame his underlings. and there's talk about the fed using the inflation rate. we have alan greenspan to talk about that policy and talk about the current state of the economy. our other special guest will be former florida governor jeb bush. i'm going to ask him about the civil war in the republican party and how to solve it. all that and more on a special edition of "the kudlow report." we are live from washington, d.c. tonight and we begin right now. >>> good evening, everyone. i'm larry kudlow. this is "the kudlow report." we are live, 7:00 p.m. eastern, 4:00 p.m. pacific time. we are in washington, d.c. top stories, continuing failure that is obama care tops the news tonight. we begin with a breaking story from our colleagues at nbc news. four stories deeply involved in the crafting of the affordable care act tell nbc news that most of the 14 million americans that have their o
